Hollywood Fringe Festival Registration Is Open

The Lemon


L.A.'s Largest Performing Arts Festival is June 8 – 25, 2017
Hollywood, CA -- Hollywood Fringe Festival organizers are excited to announce that registration is now open for the Eighth Annual Hollywood Fringe Festival. Artists and producers of the performing arts are invited to join the city's largest performing arts festival, held in central Hollywood this June.
Participants can also register for a new registration category - "Immersive Theatre." This category may include any kind of performance that thrusts the audience member into an interactive experience in a non-traditional environment.
Participants can register at any time beginning today. However, registrations must be completed by April 1st in order to be included in the printed Fringe Guide. Producers wishing to register after the April deadline will still be able to sell tickets through the festival's website.
Registration is a three-step process completed online (read all about the registration process here), that begins with the creation of a project page. Registration costs $250 for multi-performance projects. Free shows or shows with only a single performance receive a discounted registration of $175. Registration for educational events (including workshops, classes, or any other instructional/educational endeavors) can be registered for $50.
Registration fees pay for a listing in Fringe materials and many other benefits. There are no restrictions regarding genre, content, or length for the festival; specifics are left to participants and venues to determine.
Hollywood Fringe also launched a new support portal today that empowers participants, venues, and patrons to maximize their fringe experience. The new portal includes articles on key fringe activities, answers to frequently asked questions, and an easy way to contact the HFF support staff.
Persons wishing to learn more about registering for the festival should attend the organization's free Town Hall and Workshop Series. Town Hall I: The Registration Process is this Thursday, Feb. 2nd at 8pm. Click here for more information and to RSVP. Those unable to attend in person can watch the recordings, which will be released on the Fringe's YouTube channel and the Fringe blog a few days after each event.
The Festival will take place June 8-25, 2017 with a week of previews the week before (June 1st-6th) and an Opening Night Party on June 7th. Performances are staged in venues throughout central Hollywood. The location for Fringe Central, the social hub of the Fringe, will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Hollywood Fringe Festival is an annual, open-access, community-derived event celebrating freedom of expression and collaboration in the performing arts community. Each June during the Hollywood Fringe, the arts infiltrates the Hollywood neighborhood: Fully equipped theaters, parks, clubs, churches, restaurants and other unexpected places host hundreds of productions by local, national, and international arts companies and independent performers.
Participation in the Hollywood Fringe is completely open and uncensored. This free-for-all approach underlines the festival's mission to be a platform for artists without the barrier of a curative body. By opening the gates to anyone with a vision, the festival is able to exhibit the most diverse and cutting-edge points-of-view the world has to offer. Additionally, by creating an environment where artists must self-produce their work, the Fringe motivates its participants to cultivate a spirit of entrepreneurialism in the arts.
